The altercation continues and manager uses swear words including “voetsek”, “f*** you”, and “mother f***”, to which the employee replies, “You too.”

Shoprite confirmed the incident, which took place in one of its Gauteng supermarkets.

“The group strongly disapproves of the conduct of a manager visible in a video circulating on social media following a recent incident in a Shoprite store in Gauteng. The group apologises to its customers and employees and has taken immediate action.

“The implicated member of store management was placed on suspension, pending an investigation into the incident to gather all the facts that will inform the disciplinary process,” Shoprite said in a statement.

It said appropriate action would be taken in accordance with the company’s code of conduct, which applied to all management and staff.
